The saga of Sophie Tucker began somewhere between Russia and Poland with her mother trying to get to the United States to join her husband in Boston. Her mother got off the coach and sophie tuckerstopped at a little farmhouse and Sophie was born.
Sophie Tucker began singing at the German Village at Broadway and 40th St. in 1906 for $15 a week. From that time until 1912, she played the Park Circuit, a well-known vaudeville circuit of the day. For five years from 1916 to 1921 she was singing at Reisenwebers, where she popularized her immortal theme..."Some of These Days." It was always grand fun when Sophie took the stage - risqué, gay, humorous and side shaking. By 1950, she was revered as a performing legend, a throwback from another era.

Some Of These Days (1911)
This song is the considered one of the best
collective works from this artist.I still can
remember my Grandmother telling me how she met
Sophie. Grandmother told me it was around 1923 her
and Miss Tucker met My Granny was 8 at the time
and went to a local store in Brooklyn, New York
that's where she met Sophie. She told me how much
respect sophie gave her just talking and humming a
tune.My grandma asked her what the name of the song was and Sophie said "Some of these days" You're gonna miss me honey. It stuck in my grandma's head until she passed on. Miss Tucker had gone to that gracious land above some years earlier.May God Bless Sophie Tucker.Her songs will live on and on and on.
